Please Do Help Me Now! Science Or Love?

I had known my girlfriend for almost a life time,

we loved eachother so much.I didn't fall in love with her rather I grew into love with her.

We knew were going to get married someday and we've been working towards that.

But we went for a genotype test the other day and we both happen to be AS!

I am confused on what to do! Do I forget science and marry her or should science decide my love?

Help me out I beg u good naira land users!

It feels like standing at the gate of hell!

Thanks all of you who have tried to come to my rescue.

All ur suggestions are in line with what I'd been thinking of eversince.

It is not easy task and it takes a mature mind to take a step here,

I definitely will be taking a step!

I am not going back on any decision you people help me to take.

Dear, davidlyn I am not in nigeria but in the UK.What baffles me is that

the GPs here seem not to know enough about the management.

Thanks to you wonderful friends!

Bros, if i were in ur shoes i'd marry her.

Unfortunate that you are in Nigeria. Here you can easily determine the genotype of ur baby and then you can decide to terminate the pregnancy if it turns out to be SS.

U have to really think hard before u take a decision. AS means u're gonna have sicklers and u may not, is it worth takin the risk?

in some cases, u might have just an AA kid and the rest'll be AS,

Personally, i'd choose love ova science but my dear i've never been in ur shoes so it might be easier for me to say love.

It's scary having to think of the financial, emotional and psychological trauma u could go thru in the future and later on in life u ight ask urself was it really worth it.

Sit down, picture urself married to her and already with kids, picture the good and the bad and sincerely answer d question.

Goodluck

If it would take prayers,pls do pray for me ok?

@chucket:

Why not incorporate science and love? Consider that you can still get married and adopt your children.  You'd be helping more than you'll ever realize in that capacity.
